Attachment #9184677 - Attachment description: Bug 1673961 - [WIP] Add Set default browser handler in SMA → Bug 1673961 - Add Set default browser action in SpecialMessage actions

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: This feature is important to experiment with Default Browser choice during Onboarding with about:welcome in 84. It is a new FxMS action, so will not change any existing functionality and will only be used by an experiment in release 84 so we would consider this very low risk of introducing breakage.
